Linden Comansa was a company which began making tool and jig during the early parts of the 1960s. They went by the name "Imausa". The company began supplying mostly the bigger sub-contractors to the then booming automotive industry
Around that same time, there was a strong industrial expansion within Spain. This period saw Imausa making more advanced machine tools, jigs and various kinds of tools for both in-house and external use. Moreover, the corporation specialized in making pre-fabricated steel structures specially for industrial buildings.
The company's next and most logical step was into the crane market. The Spanish tourist business exploded to immediately become among the biggest tourism magnets within the world. This mass expansion of course brought a parallel demand for hospitals, schools and housing amongst other things. The company became very busy, very fast.
The first cranes that were made were saddle-jib, simple cranes. They were mostly suitable to the building methods during that specific time. The very first crane model eventually grew into a variety of cranes with a capacity ranging from 12 to 42 metric-tons.
Linden Comansa saddle-jib cranes had already met the 200 metric-ton barrier by the early 1970s. Linden Comansa has surpassed the standard and has continued to engineer and design cranes which exceed the 900 metric ton capacity. There is currently manufacturing and design facilities that permit the development and production of more spectacular and even bigger machines.
The unique Linden 8000 Modular System crane provides some particular advantages that has made it a popular machinery for Linden Comansa customers all over the globe. These clients all around the world have purchased approximately 12,000 Linden Comansa cranes in addition to the approximately 6000 machinery manufactured by Linden-Alimak in Sweden. These other cranes were made prior to the acquisition of the world-wide manufacturing and selling rights of this particular modular system.
